Flash gets kuler: RIA in a panel
Ah, I love how all this is shaping up: After debuting on the web, and followed by appearances in Dashboard and Apollo, Adobe’s kuler rich internet app is now available as a panel inside Flash CS3. Thanks to the efforts of the crew at Pixelfumes, you can now view & search feeds of color harmonies generated using the online tool, then use them inside Flash. I made a quick little demo video to show the panel in action. Great work, guys!
This is a great example of how opening a door to online community can enrich the desktop experience. If you know of other cool, usefully connected desktop apps (via Flash panels or any other method), please share ‘em. It’s very handy to have these on hand as we plan the future.
